    Fox Float X or Cane Creek DBA CS on a Bronson

    Waiting for my Bronson frame to arrive and thinking of swapping the shock from the off. I had a RP23 Kashima CTD on my old bike and was not that impressed with it. I am looking at the DBA CS and the Float X. I guess the DBA would be the best choice and it seems to get good reviews.

    The Float X is getting some good reviews as well.

    The CC DBACS seems to be getting good reviews. Not heard much about the Float X.

    Maybe also consider the RS Monarch Plus RC3?

    Santa Cruz doesn't seem to recommend Float X for Bronson:

    -clip-
    "We actually don't plan on offering this frame with the Float X, we're sticking with our two CTD options. There are a few reasons for this, but the number one reason is we designed the bike with the Boost Valve shock in mind. There are a lot of tuning options with this shock, and it offers a completely different feel than the Float X. We weren't able to tune the Float X to feel as good as the CTD Adjust Boost Valve shock, so we won't offer it. Other helpful areas the CTD shock is better: lower weight, lower cost, water bottle compatibility. We're really happy with how the frame/shock tune combination turned out, and the feedback we've gotten from customers/journalists reinforces that. In certain situations the Float X does feel more sensitive to small bumps, but there's more to a suspension tune than small bumps. Our Boost Valve shock is much more supportive (less wallow), and gives the bike a much more responsive feel."

    I posted this in the Carbon Nomad thread, I know you're looking for Bronson feedback, but thought it might be helpful:

    "I've been on the FLOAT X for 2 months now and having come off of a CTD shock, I can definitely say it's a lot better than the CTD I had. But just before getting the FLOAT X my buddy let use his DB Air, what a big mistake... The DB Air felt amazing, so when I got the FLOAT X and rode it for the first time I was a bit disappointed. It wasn't nearly as plush as the DB Air and I felt (and still feel) the compression is on high side even in Descend mode.

    But after 2 months on it, I've gotten use it and have grown to like the shock. Its much better than the old CTD I had, you can get way more small bump sensitivity out of it without blowing through you're travel and unlike my old CTD, I don't need to run it in trail mode to do so. The bottom out is much better and it feels a lot more linear through its travel vs the old CTD.

    Bottom line I would say it's a great improvement over the old CTD shock for sure. But after riding the DB Air, I would honestly kick in the extra money for a DB Air if I had to do it again."

    How did you get better small bump sensitivity with a larger volume air can, both with Fox air shocks?

    I'm also considering a CTD X to replace my stock CTD-Kashima and the '14 Monarch RC3 Plus I installed but have not been able to source the correct damper kit for. If you can't get a low comp, low or med rebound Monarch RC3 Plus, I would skip it...all aftermarket '14 Monarch+RC3 ship with M/M which is too harsh for the bike and gives up all small sensitivity.

    I went with a Float X in the end. I spoke to a large UK suspension company and they said the Float X was a lovely shock and 9 times out of 10 they would go for that over any other option.

    And how do you like it?

    question:
    when you order a CTD X do you have the choice of velocity (comp) and rebound tune and boost pressure like you would on the normal ctd? Or are they all the same? If they're different where did you get the right tube set up? I was hoping to carry over the low reb/med comp 200 boost, 0.6" vol reducer to the ctd x
    thanks!

    I picked one up off a Giant Trance X I think it was. It was removed before it had been used and I saved a fortune on the UK price. I then sent it straight off to TF Tuned for a Push service so its setup for my weight and the Bronson. First ride will be tomorrow hopefully so I will report back then.

    Its not that clear cut by any means IMHO.

    Anyhow first ride out on the Float X. It feels very nice, its a improvement on the Float CTD K and after I have a few more miles on it I am sure it will break in beautifully.

    I think many folks who make blanket statements like Surfas above, haven't actually ridden these shocks on this application.

    If you can get someone at SC to really talk to you about suspension performance, they'll tell you they do NOT recommend anything other than the CTD shock. There's a reason there are no base tunes for the Bronson listed on Cane Creek's site.

    In my experience running a DB Air back-to-back with the stock CTD Kash on a Bronson-C, the Fox performs 98% as well as the DBA at half the weight. The only place the Fox lacked was high-speed, multiple square-edge hit stuff.

    Hopefully, the Avalanche tune I'm having done now will solve that issues.

    I was out of pocket on both shocks and REALLY wanted the CCDB-A to work. For me, it didn't on this application.

    So you got the stock Fox CTD Avy tuned, or a Fox Float X? What did you find to be the issue with the CCDBA?

    I'm curious about this one also, I've got a monarch plus on mine now and have reduced the psi and reduced the volume to make it supple on the small stuff but ramp up later in the stroke, I'd like to try a low tune or a ccdba.

    Do you find the traction is a large improvement with the Monarch+? Is it ~$500 worth while spending, in your opinion?

    I'm really surprised to hear this given how much of a difference going to a CCDBA made on my Tallboy LTc relative to a Pushed Float.

    I personally think it's better than the float that came with it but takes a little tuning to get right, I'd consider going for a small volume can also but can't compare to the ccdba.

    Two things notes in the first 30 minutes, more mid stroke support and much better traction with the DB air.

    When do you get your shock back? curious to hear your impressions..
    which direction did you go for the SSD tune? standard or firm low speed..
    mine is another 2 weeks out..

    Still waiting for it to show up. They've got a pretty big backlog. I got the standard SSD tune if memory serves.

    To further what a couple people have already said above, last summer I asked both a senior Santa Cruz and senior Fox person last summer how the float X testing on the Bronson had gone, and they both said don't go float X, not worth it. I was surprised to say the least.

    I do have a friend who loves and (shreds on) a Bronson with CCDB for what it's worth.

    The CCDBA is fully adjustable. Low and high speed compression and rebound. Most times people complaining about this shock have not taken the time or do not understand how to properly adjust to their liking. How long have you had this shock? How many rides did you do to come to this conclusion? I've been told it can take months and numerous rides to get it dialed in.

    All of their Enduro team riders were riding, and still are riding Float X shocks. It can be setup to work very well on the Bronson (though, I unfortunately haven't had an opportunity to get a proper ride on it)!

    This, if you look at the tuning manual it flat out states, you make one adjustment at a time and you ride the same trail over and over until you get that setting right, then rinse and repeat for the next 3. In today's instant gratification crowd, I doubt many have the patience to do it right.

    Well, hell, I'm not a suspension tuning expert and I probably am not as smart as some of you guys. I ran the CCDB-A on my Bronson for approximately 10 weeks. I made one small change at a time, knowing that one change affects all other settings. I spoke to a couple guys at SC who would only recommend the Float CTD.

    I was unable to get the shock dialed to my needs/expectations. Obviously your results may vary. Just reporting my experience.

    No reason to take it personally, you didn't mention any of that in your posting. We all know there are people that would buy the shock, throw it on the bike spend about 1 hour trying to set it and then ***** that it sucks.

    Not personal, just reporting my experience. Clearly, if posts are to be believed, other folks are making them work. I wanted mine to work considering what I paid for it. I think the CCDB-A is an awesome shock; I just didn't find it to be awesome on my Bronson.

    No experience with the Float X. I test-rode a Mach 6 with that shock and it was fantastic.

    There are many people who don't know what a badly performing bike is like until somebody with much better suspension skills tunes their ride and suddenly it rides so much better.

    That's why it's really hard to assess folk's comments online since you can't validate their comments vs. anything objective.

    Not saying this about anyone in particular.

    I was definitely in the category above 6yrs ago and now would only go so far as to say I am aware now of how good things can be and I recognize my own suspension tuning limitations so I use experts to help me.
    Safe riding,

    My take on this is that getting the HS damping set is by far the most important (and really not that hard), in terms of having a bike that rides properly, and the LS damping comes down to tweaking but will not ruin the ride even at the extremes. Full disclosure, I love my CCDBA-CS and found it pretty easy to set up. For what it's worth, there's a semi-official base tune for the Bronson in the CC Lounge somewhere. They just couldn't get office cooperation with SC to arrive at it. Here it is:

    The Lounge | Rider Forums | Santa Cruz Bronson Tune

    SANTA CRUZ BRONSON TUNE

    Nov 25, 2013 10:57am | CaneCreekCyclingComponents | Santa Cruz
    We have recently had some good feedback from riders using the DBAIR on the Santa Cruz Bronson and have a good starting tune for those of you riding Bronsons.

    Start with 15mm of sag.

    For the DBAIR-CS: X-Vol Can with 1 Large volume spacer-

    HSC- 1.75 HSR- 1.75-2.00 LSC-7 LSR- 10

    For the standard DBAIR: X-Vol Can with 1 Large Spacer-

    HSC- 1.5-1.75 HSR- 2.00 LSC- 8-10 LSR- 10-14

    I think the CCDB is a good choice. Its not for me but then everyone is different and wants something different from there suspension.

    I started with the stock Float, then upgraded to the CTD X which is a major improvement as we all agree. I live in the area if N.Vancouver (Shore) and still wasnt happy with the mid stroke performance of the CTD X so I decided to try a CCDB Air CS. (Admitidly I'm riding this bike out of its category and pushing it beyond Enduro and into Freeride/DH)
    One ride in and without a question ...its a better choice for the Bronson.
    The rear end tracks way better and I'm landing plush off the drops and big hits.

    My initial settings are :
    15mm sag (I'm 165 Lbs before mtb gear - so @115 psi)
    Hsc - . 75 turns
    Lsc - 6 clicks
    Hsr- 2.00 turns
    Lsr - 11 clicks

    I have been running through my travel on big hits (only); however ,I'm not pinging the shock so I may stay at these base line settings ; however because I can I'm going to try increasing :
    Hsc by a 1/4 turn
    Lsc by 2 clicks

    What a wicked shock for the Bronson. Tends to ride alot closer to my Nomad now.

    I spent two months trying to figure out if I made a mistake with purchasing a bronsonc. I just could not get the rear end dialed in. I went up and down in pressure, after every ride I was changing it. I had to set it for moderate speeds or high speeds but it would never feel good on both. I trolled mtbr looking for advice. I then noticed a few of the reviews mentioning the rear shock then saw this thread:
    Santa Cruz Bronson and Cane Creek DB Air CS - Perfect Pair!
    I was convinced I might as well blow the extra money, over and above the extra I spent for the kash coated float. I got the db air cs, hooked it up, used the lounge numbers and think I have changed the air pressure once on the first ride. Now I am back to riding and not thinking wtf is going on back there. I dont use the cs lever much thanks to vpp but I finally feel like im riding a 5k bike not a pogostick. CCDBaircs saved my bronson.

    You're experiences are exactly what I am going through. I think I'm going to jump on the CCDBa. The stock shock on this bike is total ****. I may be picky, but for this many people to be upset about how it performs, something wasn't done as well as it could have been (I've spoken to professional sus tuners who support this comment too). This is my second SC bike and while both are ok/fun, the rear suspension has ultimately let them down. If I don't get this working optimally, I'll be off SCB, despite the fact I agree with a lot of what the brand stands for.

    Now to find a spare few hundred bucks…

    I have a Nomad, had a Fox CTD Kashima, and the rear ... don't work like I was expecting, even my previous BLT2 with RP23 the rear work better, so I trade for a DBair CS XV and now it's incredible.
    I think Santa Cruz should make the DBair an options when costumers buy a frame, right know I'm Fox off, there products are over priced for what they are, I'm going trade my Fox 34 for a BOS Deville, that for the same price works much much better.

    Obviously SC has changed their mind on this issue, as the Bronson C is now available with the CCDB as an option.

    I've talked to the tech folks at SC, and they mentioned that the CCDBA that they spec on the Bronson is a custom tune. That surprised me, as I'd thought that the shock was so insanely tuneable that it would work on almost any frame with the right setup (as outlined on their excellent website).

    Anyone else have any comments on the CCDB Air CS on a Bronson?

    I'm weighing three options: get the CTD shock tuned by PUSH, pick up a CCDB, or just upgrade to the new Nomad.

    Jerryek, my new Bronson C came with the CC DB Air CS, and it is tuned by SC. So far the only thing I did on it was to adjust the sag as suggested by SC, and it is incredible as is with the factory tune. I had the Fox Kashima CTD shock on my Blur LT bike, and I can definitely tell the difference between these two shocks, even though the bikes are very different. I have the RS Pike in front, which is also a great combination with DB Air CS.

    Just because it's fully adjustable doesn't mean you can get it dialed! In fact that's precisely why CC had to go back to the drawing board with their standard version and come out with a "Bronson Tune" to work well with the leverage curve of that bike.

    Personally I'll put my custom tuned X-Fusion Vector Air up against a CCDBA any day, for quite a bit less jingo and weight too.

    Have FUN!

    PS - Oh and I've never spent more than a couple hours (not months) "dialing her in" because X-Fusion got her spot on from day one.

    I believe it's not just a custom tune -- some of the internals are different.
